Chasin Tail Fisheries FV-Playmaker

Team up with Chasin Tail Fisheries FV and hit the water in pursuit of a brag-worthy catch! Captain Anthony Roberts runs a premier charter service and he takes pride in organizing productive fishing trips for his customers.

His boat, the 28’ “Playmaker” is outfitted with a 325 HP Volvo engine and can accommodate up to 6 people and have them fishing at the same time. The vessel is safe and agile, so you’ll follow the fish’s trail easily. This is a lean fishing machine with solid navigational electronics, outriggers, and a live bait well.

There’s a porta potty on board, which is very convenient on longer trips. The captain will provide top-notch Shimano fishing gear for you to use, as well as lures and live bait. Before you go home, the first mate will clean the catch for you and help out with everything you need. Since he works for tips, 20% gratuity is expected.

Depending on your time and preferences, you can choose from a range of trips on offer. On half day expeditions, you will target anything from Flounder, Striped Bass, and Bluefish to Haddock, Cod, and Atlantic Mackerel. All the trips can be adjusted to angler’s preferences. If you’d like to try something different, you can catch Lobster and come home with a feast worthy of kings.

All you will need for your trip with Chasin Tail Fisheries FV is food and drinks. Kids are welcome to join you, as long as they’re 5 and older, the captain will have life jackets for everyone.

Discover a fun productive fishery around Boston Harbor Islands and you’ll come back to it year after year!

Captain Anthony has been fishing since he was a young man. He started his career as an Orvis guide fly fishing out west. Anthony was living in the Virgin Islands when he got his first job on a sportfishing boat out of St. Thomas. He instantly fell in love with offshore fishing. Captain Anthony then moved on and has been captaining boats around the world – Costa Rica, Panama, Louisana, New England, the Gulf of Mexico, you name it! Anthony has a great love and passion for fishing and the outdoors. He enjoys sharing his knowledge with others whenever possible.

Good day “Chasing Tale”

Great time! Gift for my dad and husband for Father’s Day. I suggest calling prior to confirm time and parking. A little hiccup...
